A feline dubbed the “world’s biggest cat” has grown so much that it can stand as tall as a two-year-old child.

Yulia Minina, from Russia, left the internet stunned when she posted pictures and videos of her beloved pet, Kefir the Main Coon, earlier this year, with people mistaking it for a dog.

Despite being known for its large size and thick double coat of long hair, Main Coons are affectionate gentle giants that are people-oriented.

In recent post on Yulia’s Instagram, the cat lover shows how her “gentle giant” gets along with her two-year-old daughter.



The ginormous cat seemed nearly as tall as the child

“Sweet couple – Kefir and Anechka. These two are never bored,” she wrote.

Little Anechka is seen cutting snacks for Kefir in the kitchen.

The hungry moggy stands alongside Anechka, patiently waiting for his little master to feed him the food.

The inseparable pair love spending their time together in the house. When Anechka is watching cartoons on the sofa, Kefir stays close to her and lies on the top of the couch.

The video melted hearts with many viewers commenting on the big cat’s special bond with humans.

“Perfect friendship, how adorable!” one expressed and a second penned: “Kefir as tall as Anechka. You can tell that they are a couple.”

Others were amazed by Kefir’s size as one said: “Oh my God I thought it was a dog!”

“Giant gentle! Kefir is so big!” another wrote while a third asked how Yulia managed to keep the house “fur-free”.

She replied: “I use a robot vacuum cleaner…non-stop!”

She previously said she treated Kefir like her second child, adding: “He not only grew up big in appearance, he is also very smart and always behaves calmly.

“The look is generally like that of a person, and Kefir has a formidable appearance, but he is a very affectionate and modest child.”
